The Len Reynolds Trust bears a heart to grow prosperous communities. We do this by building partnerships with Waikato community organisations. The Trust Fund distributes funds to charitable organisations and community groups primarily across the Waikato Region.
We are active in seeking out groups to fund and how to fund them. Our Trust funds legally constituted community groups or organisations that are registered under the Charities Act 2005 and working towards one or more of the following:
- Encouraging more community based and community led initiatives
- Improving community spirit and connectivity
- Supporting a wide and diverse range of activities
- Promoting volunteering
In our work, we are committed to partnering with the community by showing compassion, integrity and upholding the Reynolds’ legacy. We value the needs of the community that they did: the environment, education, families and social well-being.
As we move forward, it is vital to us to strengthen our existing relationships and continue to make new ones. We value our partnership with Community Waikato, who was appointed as the Trust’s fund manager in 2014. This partnership allows us to effectively administer an annual allocated portion of the Trust Fund to the Waikato community. Further information about the managed fund can be found here.
